This handsome, 15-story, red-brick apartment building is a short walk from Sutton Place. It was erected in 1927 and has 45 condominium apartments.

Over the years, it has served as home to numerous celebrities including Marilyn Monroe, the actress, and Bill Blass, the designer.

It has a four-story rusticated limestone base with a canopied entrance with two-story-high columns and sidewalk landscaping. It has a doorman, a vaulted lobby with marble floor, some decorative balconies, protruding air-conditioners, no garage and inconsistent fenestration.

This is a handsome block with many attractive pre-war apartment buildings. There is good cross-town bus service on the street, but subways are not close.
